SHO Silent Hunter Online Captain's Exam


The folks at BlueByte/Ubisoft has given me a fresh batch of game voucher codes for Silent Hunter Online to give out. Here's how it works:

As a fresh Kaleun, you will be asked to demonstrate your knowledge of submarine history, trivia and lore. Every so often I will post an exam question in this thread. The first person to correctly answer the question will receive one SHO voucher code. Edited posts are not allowed as a winner.

You can only be a winner once.

When will the questions appear? At random, unannounced times. As a skipper, you cannot expect your targets to make an appointment to show up in front of your torpedo tubes, and these questions will be just as unpredictable. There may be one a day or 5 in an hour. There will be 50 in all!

How to redeem a code:

1. Go to the SHO website: http://www.silenthunteronline.com/
2. Login with your account.
3. Click on the button “Shop” and in the shop on the button “Redeem a voucher”.
4. Enter the code and click “redeem”.
5. The player receives the following items as soon as he logs into the game:
- 100 Credits
- 5x Torpedo “XI G7es Zaunkönig II (Level 5)”

Rules:

- Every user only can redeem one of the 50 codes. You can win one time.
- After you have won, please do not answer any more exam questions, allow other skippers to win.
- Every code only can be used one time.
- If the codes will not be used, they will expire in June 2015.

Good hunting!

For true pedantry, I'd say the number is just 96 :-)

And welcome to subsim, dundee101 ;-)

Question 2: What was the name of Sam Dealey's famous submarine. If ya gotta use Google, that's ok but if you know it by heart, be sure to say so.
